his cavalry corps, except Pleasonton's brigade, ostensibly to go to the Shenandoah Valley. It was my part to send Bushbeck's infantry brigade of Von Steinwehr's division in his support as far as Kelly's Ford. But the flooding rains again began, and had the effect of detaining the whole of Stoneman's force for some days in that neighborhood. Just what he was to do we did not then know. April 21st, Doubleday, of Reynolds's (First) Corps, also started down the river, and went as far as Port Conway. He here made sundry demonstrations which indicated a purpose to try and effect a crossing. Colonel Henry A. Morrow with his Michigan regiment (Twenty-fourth) made another display near Port Royal. The Confederate commanders believed them to be but feints. These demonstrations had, however, the effect of causing Lee to send troops down the river to watch our proceedings. Jackson went thither in command. On April 25th I was instructed to send knapsacks and other supplies to Bushbeck

achusetts. The plantation adjoining mine on the north is Wakefield, where George Washington was born. Next to me on the south is Stratford, where Richard Henry Lee and Light Horse Harry Lee were born. Next to Stratford comes Chantilly, where Arthur Lee, Francis Lightfoot Lee, Charles Lee and William Lee were born. If the gentleman will ride with me six miles I'll take him to Monroe's Creek, where President Monroe was born; if he will ride with me half an hour longer I will take him to Port Conway, where President Madison was born; if he will then stand with me in my portico I will show him, over the tree-tops, the chimney-stacks of the baronial mansion where Robert E. Lee first saw the light. Can Massachusetts match those men? There is no wonder, then, that this old town, seated at the very head of this favored region, should have borne herself so proudly, and have remembered so well the breed of noble bloods from whom her people sprung. We can never forget them, and we must

hannock, and extended his cantonments so as not to encumber his troops and to guard the principal passes of the river. Works were constructed at all the important positions from Banks' Ford, above Fredericksburg, as far as the neighborhood of Port Conway, where the Rappahannock becomes an obstacle almost insurmountable. The left wing, formed of the two divisions of Longstreet's corps, occupied the country around Fredericksburg and all the locality of the late battle as far as Hamilton's Crmild weather would render him once more free in his movements, Hooker tried to put the enemy on the wrong scent by means of certain demonstrations along the Lower Rappahannock. About the 21st of April, Doubleday's division proceeded as far as Port Conway, twenty-one miles below Fredericksburg, and made a feint of preparing to build a bridge; two days later, the 23d, a regiment, the Twenty-fourth Michigan, having actually effected a passage in boats, made its appearance in the village of Port R

e cavalry. The Confederates having fallen unexpectedly upon two vessels in Chesapeake Bay, had hid them in the winding stream of the lower Rappahannock. Kilpatrick's division, then under the command of Custer, came to occupy the right bank of the river and cover two Union gunboats sent in quest of the Confederates. The Second corps, for a short time under the command of the gallant General Warren, marched to Falmouth to support the movement. The two vessels and crews were surprised at Port Conway by Custer and destroyed with artillery; but that insignificant result was not worth the risk run by the cavalry and the fatigue imposed on a whole army corps. The first part of the month of September also passed tranquilly. Meade was waiting the return of the troops sent to the North and the arrival of the new recruits, when he was suddenly roused from his inaction by unexpected news. That inaction had been a very fortunate occurrence for the Confederate army. It had returned to th

The force left camp at 2 P. M. of Wednesday, the 22d, and marched to Port Conway, distant 18 miles, by 10 P. M.--They bivouacked behind the village, and, by direction, built no fires, and kept very quiet. --The approach of our forces was conducted so secretly that our own cavalry pickets in Port Conway were not aware of thPort Conway were not aware of the presence of our men until they marched into the town on Thursday morning. Col. Morrow rested his men until 3½ A M. of the 23d, when he began to construct his pontoons, which had been brought down in wagons to the number of eighteen. The pontoons used were of a new pattern. They are composed of a light frame work, put together at the moment of use, and then set on a large piece of canvass, which is wrapped and looped and tightened around it by means of loopholes and ropes.
